The awkward name-calling and gentle smooching of anthropomorphic superheroes just got awkwardly smoochier! Muggings continue to transpire at an alarming rate! Someone better call the Anti-Mugger!

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Nov 5, 2014

    Like I said, there's a lot of threads that I'm following in God Hates Astronauts: the troubled-but-on-the-mend marriage of Star-Grass and Starrior; the Anti-Mugger's horrifying new sleep-mugging habit; Doctor Professor and his incoming horde of Crabulonian invaders. There are even back-up features trying to keep us up-to-date on the whereabouts and the doings of The Impossible. None of this is me complaining"I love all the things Browne is doing. I just really really hope he can pull them all together in a couple issues to end the arc. But really, if at the end of the day, my issue is that I hope a creator, who has proven themselves more than capable of handling a story, isn't juggling too many balls, do I really have anything to worry about? This reader says: no. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Nov 5, 2014

    This issue is ludicrous. And I mean that in a good way. Like "My Chick Bad" Ludacris rather than "Fred Claus" Ludacris (I don't know how many comic book readers will understand those references, but if you got both of them congratulations). This issue brings us back up to the standards presented in the first and it looks like plenty of action in on the horizon for Stargrass and the rest of the nincompoops at NASA. Read Full Review

    This isn't a book you pick up if your primary goal isn't to laugh, and if you don't want a good laugh, what's your deal? Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Martin Ferretti Nov 5, 2014

    While God Hates Astronauts may not be a book for everyone, it's a terrific story that never takes itself seriously. If you want try something different and innovative though, this may be the book for you. I look forward to seeing where Browne takes the book in the future, and whether he can maintain the level of humor throughout the series run. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 4, 2014

    All in all, this is a fantastic third outing for the series. There's definately some grander plan at work but, for now, I'm happy with the combination of charm, humor and artistic talent that's being offered here. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Ben Ecker Nov 6, 2014

    Unlike the overall narrative, I actually am enjoying Browne's artwork. This does make me wonder if a version of this book, in which he was working with collaborator on writing, would be more up my alley. Like his writing, Browne's art is not subtle in the least. But the book definitely feels like it would be better served with these images and exposition that was a bit more reserved, whereas the same exposition with a more subtle art style would just not work in the least. I actually do really enjoy the creative usage of onomatopoeiae that aren't onomatopoeiae at all. But, amidst the barrage of just as ridiculous exposition, it just feels overwhelming.
